  • I’m not trying to give a full picture of anything. I just want to compile the Top 10 solo female songs of each decade on that specific platform (Spotify), that’s it. And I would like to know if I’m forgetting to include any other song on the list.

      Fake news. Streams are the only relevant and accurate metric aside from radio. Two metrics my faves dominate

      • Oh that's good then, Glad we agree that your list is not particularly relevant.

        • Billie Eilish needs to release something uptempo like Bad Guy cause her recent releases are sleep inducing.

            - Streaming (mainly: Spotify + Apple Music + Youtube)
            - Radio
            - Traditional sales (physical / digital)

              Streaming wasn't even counted for the charts until 2013 so no I disagree. Streaming is the relevant metric these days but when looking at songs from the past in the pre streaming era then no, streaming is not at all the only relevant metric.

              Also everyone knows that streaming and radio are payola central and don't reflect organic demand in a lot of cases actually.

                Bad Guy was an anamoly for Billie. 90 percent of her music is laid back. Bury a friend and Bad Guy are the most uptempo things she has done. I cannot recall another uptempo in her catalogue actually, although I could be missing one. Even Everything I wanted was pretty boppy for Billie!!!

                • Streaming IS the main metric now. It’s pointless to debate on that.

                  • For me, the real success is whether an artist can sell out a tour or not. People stream their music for free but do they love them enough to buy tour tickets?

                      * Solo female artists or solo female artists in leading vocals (no female bands, groups or duos)

                      2010s - Spotify:
                      1. Billie Eilish - Bad Guy - 1,523,554,509
                      2. Camila Cabello - Havana - 1,492,827,745
                      3. Dua Lipa - New Rules - 1,406,946,053
                      4. Ariana Grande - 7 Rings - 1,244,771,991
                      5. Sia - Cheap Thrills - 1,193,677,705

                      10. Dua Lipa - IDGAF - 1,033,506,692


                      Is it correct though? Am I missing any solo female song?
                      I can think of some but won't name them coz they would kick out Dua

                        Exactly. I mean I don't think streaming is really a barometer of much. I stream every new release, cos I can , for free. ( well i pay for premium) but if streaming didn't exist there is no way I would purchase those new releases in a record shop or even on itunes.

                          Yes, “IDGAF” would be kicked out .. but on the other hand she is well secured at #3 with “New Rules”

                                • Tina Turner came to Turkey in 97 or 98, i can't believe i missed it. I would've liked to see Whitney in her prime. The only one i'm interested to see in that list is Beyoncé. And Katy Perry who isn't on that list yet i don't give a F cause her shows are really fun.

                                    I can’t believe I forgot about “Dance Monkey” .. That was huge.

                                    .. Nah “Señorita” is a duet with a male singer in the same way “Shallow” by Gaga & Bradley is. This is a list for solo female performances.

                                        Beyonce had it correct.

                                            Dua and Ariana the only ones with two entries. These 2 along with Billie Eyelash def are the 3 biggest new pop girls.

                                            If you think about it these 3 are the Rihanna, Beyonce and Gaga of this generation:

                                            Ariana is Beyonce: R&B leaning, acclaimed and very vocally gifted.
                                            Dua is Rihanna: snacthedT, cool, beautiful & modelesque. Versatile as hell, acclaimed & an endless string of hits.
                                            Billie is Ga Ga: one and a half era wonder.

                                                  Dua is Rihanna: snacthedT, cool, beautiful & modelesque. Versatile as hell, acclaimed & an endless string of hits.
                                                  Billie is Ga Ga: one and a half era wonder.
                                                  Taylor is still bigger than those three.

                                                    LOL Rihanna is much bigger than Tayloo. More hits, more record sales, more strihms, more impact, higher net worth etc.
